Chineham & Sherfield Park Scarecrow Trail 24th- 25th July

Come and join Basingstoke and District Disability Forum (BDDF) on 24th – 25th July for this fantastic annual community event. ‘The Rolls Royce of Scarecrow Trails’ returns, local residents are busily constructing their entries which follow this years’ theme ‘Heroes and Villains’. Last year, we surpassed all expectations and the hundreds of families that attended enjoyed the 96 amazing entries over 2 trails which covered a total of 6 miles. This year all scarecrows will remain on display until 30th July, so everyone has a chance to complete the trail.

Saturday’s family activities will be based at Chineham Christ Church, then moving to Sherfield Park Community Centre on Sunday. These will include local craft stalls, refreshments, raffle and the fantastic team from ‘Pop Up and Play’ will be providing entertainment for the kids. For those coming from further afield, parking will be available at Four Lanes Community School.

As your local disability charity, it is important to us that the route is completely accessible and has been carefully considered to include drop curbs to be inclusive to all mobility levels.

If you want to get involved there are loads of ways that you can support us, as well as taking part in the event to follow the trail. We are a small charity and rely on the help of our volunteers. You could support disabled people taking part with a guided walk, assist at the main sites with maps and refreshments, or help the organization of the event. If you would like to get involved, please contact info@bddf.org.uk

Last year we raised £5077, these are vital funds for the charity to continue our work – all services are free to access, from seated yoga to IT courses and our signposting services, and will support our mission to facilitate increased awareness, active involvement, and healthy promotion of disability and those who live it. For more information, please visit our website www.bddf.org.uk, telephone 01256 423869 or follow us on social media to keep up to date with our services.
